The American Academy of Dermatology and the American Academy of Opthalmology join forces each year in July to support UV Safety Month. During this month people are reminded to protect their skin and eyes by applying sunscreen and wearing sunglasses and wide-brimmed hats when heading outdoors.

Here are a few ways to protect your skin and eyes:

1. Generously apply a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 30 to all exposed skin before going outdoors.

2. Wear protective clothing, including sunglasses.

3. Seek shade between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m..

4. Use extra caution near water, snow, and sand.

5. Get vitamin D safely from dietary sources and/or supplements.

6. Avoid tanning beds.

7. Check your birthday suit on your birthday. Consult a dermatologist if you notice anything changing, growing, or bleeding on your skin.
